## Main Question or Discussion Point

**Trigonometry "puzzle"**

If we know the perimeter P of a triangle, a side S of it, and the height H down on the line going through S, then we have uniquely determined the triangle.

It is not wholly trivial to derive the expressions for the other two sides in terms of P,S and H.
